News and Announcement
Feedback on the 2021 Donation to Wescot
During our 2021 meeting in January, Wescot was awarded the 2021 donation for use in promoting the shotgun shooting sports. One of the sponsored events was a "Beginner's League". As Gene Newton indicated in an email that he sent me, the group consisted of a wide diversity of members. This is an example of one way that clubs can generate interest in shooting, not only among young members, but members of all ages. Gene included a photo of the league members.

Rio Conservation Club Aug 21 Shoot
I owe an apology to the Rio Conservation Club. They sent me information about a shoot on Aug 21, and somehow I read the date as Aug 31. When they advised me of the error, I was travelling with little to no internet or cell phone access and I did not have a computer to update the information. I am truly sorry.
New Link Added
I recently received a proposed link to add to the general links page. We all know the importance of good eyesight for successful shooting. Visioncenter.org has a lot of interesting articles regarding vision problems. I added a link to the article about Aging and Eyesight. Spend some time exploring the site.
Westshore Sportsmans Club, Two Rivers WI
A Benefit Shoot has been added to the calendar on May 15. The attached PDF file provides additional information. Please support this good cause.
There was a typo in the Lewis Results from the April 11 Wildlife, Inc shoot. Mike advised me and I have corrected it. All the payout information was correct on the original document.
WBBSC Cancelled Shoot
The West Bend Barton Sportsman's Club needed to cancel the April 11 Shoot. Please make note of the change.
Quad County Chain Shoots Update

Youth Shooting Updates

Kettle Moraine Trapshooting Conference
I received this note in an email from a representative of the KMTC. They received a donation in January, 2020 from the clubs that support this site. I removed the recipient's last names in the interest of their privacy.
On behalf of the Kettle Moraine Trapshooting Conference, I would thank the East Wisconsin Shotgun Sports for the 2020 donation of $500.00 that was applied to our three Scholarship recipients listed; Alex P., Alexis S. and Eleanore K..

Colleges with Trap and Skeet Programs
If you enjoy trap or skeet shooting, are in high school, and you're planning to attend college, you might want to consider schools that have strong trap and skeet programs. Attached is a list that could help get you connected with a college that can provide the major you are looking for and competitive shotgun shooting opportunities.
Occasional Site Outages
I recently received a note through the mail that people were unable to access the site. After a lot of time on the phone and on chats, and lots of research on my own, it turned out that the counter that I had been using since 2012 was linked with a site that was blacklisted with the hosting service's new malware scanner. I removed the code for the old counter and installed one from a different site. I no longer get any notifications that there is malware on the site. The issue should be resolved, but a couple of days ago, the site was down again. I had to reset a file, and the site came back up. I will continue to try to monitor the site for this issue.
If anyone notes that the site is down in the future, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Shooting event to support Cancer Research
I was given some information about an organization called Gunning For Hope. The web site is GunningForHope.org. Check out the organization and consider supporting them.
Thanks to all who support "Cause Shoots".
We are all faced with challenges in our lives, but some take the form of serious health issues such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc. Many fellow shooters are directly affected by these diseases, and other shooters rally to support them with fund raisers in the form of "Cause Shoots", such as the cancer shoots at Berlin and Hartford and the juvenile diabetes shoot at Eastshore. I personally want to thank all of you who support these wonderful causes.
REMEMBER: INTRODUCE SOMEONE TO SHOOTING. IT'S THE FUTURE OF THE SPORT
